TO GIVE UP-TO-DATE SUMMARY OF BOMBING
WASHINGTON (AP)--The Pentagon said today it hopes to provide
shortly, an up-to-date summary of the recent intensive bombing of North
Vietnam. A report was issued last week which covered the first week of the
In Saigon, the U.S. Command reversed a previous decision and said it
wil not make public its own assessment of the bomb damage in Hanoi and
Iaiphong last week. A spokesman gave no reason for the change of mind.
Other sources indicated that a directive from Washington was
responsible because of the renewed peace talks and an international
controversy over Hanoi's allegations that civilian targets were hit.
North Vietnam's top peace negotiator, Le Duc Tho, flew into Moscow
today on his way to Paris and a new round of talk with Henry Kissinger.
These talks are due to resume Monday.
President Nixon conferred at the White House with Kissinger and other
top aides on the Vietnam situation.
A regular session of the Vietnam peace talks was held in Paris today
after a two-week suspension. U.S. delegate William Porter told the
disputing North and South Vietnamese to lay aside their bitterness and
turn toward reconciliation.
SOCIAL SECURITY HEAD RESIGNS
WASHINGTON (AP)-White House sources say the resignation of Social
Security Administrator Robert Ball probably will be announced today.
Ball, who worked his way up from the bottom ranks of civil service to
preside over the massive Social Security system, reportedly wanted to stay
on. But the sources said Nixon had decided to accept the pro formal
resignation which the 58-year-old official, like all other high-ranking
presidential appointees, submitted after Nixon's re-election.
There was no reason given immediately for why Nixon decided to accept
Ball's resignation. In his ten years as Social Security Head, Ball has
developed friendships with key members of Congress.
Ball joined the government in 1939 as a field representative in the
Newark, New Jersey office of the Bureau of Old Age and Survivors
Insurance. He was named Commissioner by President John Kennedy in
March, 1962 when William Mitchell retired.
He was one of the architects of Social Security's Disability and Medicare
provisions, and received the Rockefeller public service award for his
supervision of the vast Social Insurance programme that now provides
benefits to one of every nine Americans.
MESSAGE MAY NOT BE DELIVERED IN PERSON
WASHINGTON (AP)-President Nixon may not deliver the traditional
State of the Union message to Congress in person this year. In his first year
in office, Nixon sent his message to Capitol Hill rather than delivering it in
Congressional sources say this year the President is expected instead to
present broad outlines of his legislative programmes in his January 20th
Inaugural Address and follow up with a written message to Congress.
MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR LATE PRESIDENT TRUMAN
WASHINGTON, JAN. S (AP)-Government and foreign dignitaries
gather at Washington Cathedral today to memorialize the 33rd president of
the United States.
The 88-year-old Harry S. Truman died Dec. 26 and was buried in the
grassy courtyard of the library in Independence, Mo., that houses the
documents and mementos of his life.
The former President had requested that only family and close friends
attend the funeral service at the library last week.
Vice President Spiro T. Agnew will represent President Nixon, who flew
to Independence to pay his respects before the funeral. The nine justices of
the Supreme Court, Leaders of the House and Senate and numerous
foreign dignitaries also will attend.
About 200 of the 2,000 seats in the Gothic cathedral will be open to the
public, and a lawn on the cathedral grounds was roped off to accommodate
any overflow crowd.
Prime Minister John Lunch of Ireland, President Zalman Shazar of
Israel, Premier Kim Chong Pil of South Korea and Vice President Yen
Chia-Kan of Taiwan were among the foreign officials representing their
governments at the service.
Troman's daughter, Margaret,Margaret, and her husband Clifton Daniel will
represent the family. The former President's wife Bess, 87, in frail health
and is not expected to travel to Washinton for the ceremony.
Mamie Eisenhower, widow of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
will accompany the Daniels.
LEGISLATION TO REINSTATE DEATH PENALTY
WASHINGTON (AP)-Attorney-General Kleindienst says the Nixon
administration will submit legislation to Congress to reinstate the death
penalty on a restrictive basis. Kleindienst told newsmen today he thinks
the death penalty should be imposed in certain crimes.
The Supreme Court ruled last June that the death penalty, as it applied
to those on death row, was unconstitutional.
The first House bill of the 93rd Congress introduced today would
create a National Health Insurance programme, with a modified role to be
played by the federal government. It was introduced by Democrat Al
Uliman of Oregon.

ACTION ON U.S.-CUBAN HIJACKING PROPOSALS
WASHINGTON (AP)-Further Cuban proposals and idea concerning an
anti-hijacking agreement between the United States and Cuba have been
received from Havana, the State Department said Thursday.
Spokesman Charles Bray said this was the third round in a
Washington-Havana exchange which began Nov. 25 on possibilities of an
accord to stop hijacking of alrines to Cuba.
Bray said the menage received from Cuba is "now under study" here
but he gave no further characterization.
Secretary of State William P. Rodgers had previously said that "a
foundation for an agreement has been laid."
In the absence of diplomatic relations between the two countries, the
negotiations are being conducted via the Swiss who represent the United
States in Havana. Bray said Swiss Ambassador Silvio Masnata met in
Havana last evening with Cuban Foreign Ministry officials to receive
proposals, ideas and reactions to U.S. proposals of several weeks ago.

'WHITE AUSTRALIA' POLICY BEING REVIEWED
SYDNEY, Jan. 5 (AP)- The last
remains of the "white Australia"
policy on immigration are expected
to be interred by the end of this
year, according to political
commentators in the federal capital
This will follow the ordering of
an across the board review of the
country's immigration programmes
by Albert Grasnby, immigration
minister in the Labour Party
government which came to power
Dec. 2 after 23 years in opposition.
The review, announced by
Grassby Dec. 26, is aimed at
bringing into effect one of the
Labour Party platforms enunciated
before the general election. This
called for an immigration policy
"without racial discrimination."
Former Liberal-Country Party
coalition governments have been
easing the hardline white Australia
policy since 1966 but had retained
the aim of a 'homogeneous
In effect, this permitted the
entry of non-whites and their
families jo long as the breadwinner
was a professional or skilled person
and so long as the family could be
expected to integrate into
Unlike whites, the non-whites
were not allowed to claim or at
least were not granted assisted
passages under which migrants pay
only a nominal sum toward their air
or sea fares, with the government
picking up the rest of the travel tab.
Around two-thirds of Australia's
2.6 million immigrants since World
War Two have travelled here for
Since the country's policy
toward non-whites was eased they
have been migrating to Australia at
an average of 9,500 annually.-
Though Grassby indicated in a
newspaper interview that the
non-racial policy already had been
implemented, an immigration
department spokesman In Canberra
said Friday that the result of the
review would be awaited before
changes were made. Political
commentators expect the review to
be completed by the middle of this

TWA jet lands safely
at S. Dakota after
Spanish extortion threat
By Terry Woster
ELLSWORTH AIR FORCE BASE, SOUTH Dakota (AP) A
transatlantic jumbo jet carrying 233 persons landed safely at the
U.S. Strategic Air Command base here Thursday after being
diverted from New York following a telephoned bomb threat.
The Trans World Airline
Boeing 747, en route from
Madrid, Spain, touched down
about 41 hours after Ellsworth
officials received word it was
being diverted because of the
An air force bomb squad
immediately began a search of
the plane, and the FBI took
charge of the investigation. An
FBI spokesman said there had
been no report of a bomb
found aboard the aircraft. "If a
bomb had been found, we'd
know about it," the FBI agent
said. Air force specialists
Friday said no trace of a bomb
had been found.
Originally, TWA said the
flight was being sent to
mile-high Denver Airport
because the caller said a bomb
aboard was set to explode
below 3,000 feet.
A spokesman at Ellsworth,
located near Rapid City, said
the 13,500-foot runway used
by the jetliner was at an
elevation of 3,200 feet above
Two persons aboard the
plane, Larry Henschel and
Louis Comroe, said passengers
were told about the bomb
threat while in flight between
Madrid and New York.
They said the pilot
announced he would divert the
plane to Denver but later said
he would land- at Ellsworth
because of a fuel shortage.

Ill OFFICER DIES,
CHILDREN OF IATE
STIOE I.K. TROOPS
BELFAST (AP) A gunmen
killed a snilitia officer outside his
home near Londonderry late
Thursday night after guerrillas and
rock-throwing "children of hate"
attacked British troops in Northern
An army spokesman identified
the officer as Captain Jim Hood,
SO, of the Ulster Defense Regiment
UDR Northern Ireland's
The spokesman said Hood was
cut down at point-blank range by
shotgun blasts as he walked to his
front door after a spell on duty.
He was the 882nd known fatality
in the sectarian bloodletting that
has raged in the British province for
more than three years and the 25th
UDR man to die.
The army said the Irish
Republican Army IRA opened
up on troops three times in
Belfast's turbulent Roman Catholic
quarters Thursday, but no
casualties were reported.
Police men captured three bant
raiders, possibly guerrillas or
members of militant Protestant
vigilante organizations, in a
shoot-out in Belfast. One of the
raiders was wounded.
A mob of 300 children, some in
knee-pants, stoned troops in the
Catholic Creggan estate of
Londonderry and injured four
troopers. The army loosed off
nearly 100 rubber bullets from riot
guns to disperse the mob it claimed
was incited by IRA men.
A Protestant man in
Londonderry earlier missed death
by inches when gunmen pumped
ten shots at him, several of them
whistling past his ear, as he left a
house in the predominantly
Catholic Shantallow district.
The gunmen were believed to be
sectarian killers who claimed 121
victims last year.
The shooting came only a few
hours before the militant Ulster
Defense Association UDA the
biggest of the Protestant vigilante
groups, warned it would go gunning
for both Catholic and Protestant
assassins if they did not end their
eiwn qf terror.

. Time marches on .
By ETIENNE DUPUCH
I don't know how, when or why tht Reeves family came to
Nassau. But I believe that the family must have originated in
Barbados because the first Reeves I knew was very proud of his
family association with one of the first coloured Chief Justices
and Knight Bachelors in the British Empire ... Sir Conrad Reeves.
As far as I know, the Reeves of whom I write was the first
member of the family to settle in Nassau. I remember him as a
proud, dignified coloured man who held a post in the Public
Service. I am not sure but I think it was in the Customs
He had three sons Sigie, Cleveland, a retired public servant
who still lives in the family homestead on Dowdeswell Street, and
Frederick, who went to Washington and became a successful
Sigie died not very long ago. The last I heard of Freddie he was
still alive in Washington. I could easily check these details with
Mr. Cleveland Reeves if I were in Nassau but I am writing this
article in Miami and so I must trust entirely to my memory.
It doesn't worry me about the possibility of making a mistake
because I am sure that Mr. Reeves will immediately write a letter
to The Tribune to set the record straight.
As a young man Sigie Reeves migrated to Miami. This was in
the early days when many thousands of coloured Bahamians
moved to Florida which was only then rising out of the swamps
of the Everglades.
A printer by trade, Mr. Reeves founded The Miami Times for
the coloured community of Miami which, at that time, because
of the heavy migration from the Bahamas, was more Bahamian
As is the experience of all pioneer efforts in a new community,
The Times had many hard days but it grew with the community
and today it is a fine newspaper, edited by his only son, Garth
Sigie Reeves forged another historical connection when he
married a daughter of the Rev. Marshall Cooper, the first Negro
Priest in the Anglican communion in the Bahamas. A park has
been named in his honour by the Pindling Government.
Fr. Cooper was supposed to have been a direct descendant of
Emperor Christophe of Haiti who built the fortress and San Souci
Palace at Cap Haitien which is regarded as one of the wonders of
The story is that when Christophe was stricken with paralysis
and was pursued in the palace by his enemies he shot himself in
the head with a silver bullet and fell into a vat of white lime
which he had kept ready for such an emergency. In any event his
body was never found.
It is said that one of his sons was smuggled out of the country
o into Cat Island where he grew up to manhood and raised a Cat
Fr. Cooper had a brother by the name of Sam. He was a boat
builder and lived in a house on the site on Shirley Street now
occupied by the Nigel Jones building where the Parliamentary
Registrar has his offices.
*,. I was born in a house on the site of The Tribune building about
a hundred yards easfof tiTe Cooper house.
Sam Cooper became perhaps my earliest and one of my best
loved friends. It was too early for me to remember but I was told
by my mother that almost every time she missed me she found
me with "Pa Cooper" on one of the boats he was building under a
: magnificent sapodilla tree in the front of his yard. Very often I
didn't have a stitch of clothes on!
I 1 didn't know Father Cooper but "Pa Cooper" was a man of
: great dignity.
4, Back in those days he was a member of Christ Church
\ Cathedral and had the distinction on Sundays of taking up the
collection. As you may imagine, he was one of the very few ... if
not the only ... black member of the Cathedral at that time.
He was an impressive man. When he put on his best grey suit
-1 on Sunday and topped it off with a felt hat and a sturdy walking
stick, he looked every inch the descendant of a proud Emperor of
And when he walked down Bay Street of a Sunday morning
people turned round to take a second look at a man who in his
bearing showed that he was very conscious of his human dignity.
A I used to be proud to walk down Bay Street, hand in hand with
'. my friend.
My last very clear recollection of "Pa Cooper" was the day I
came home from the first world war. He was then too old to
come to the landing stage at Rawson Square or to the Barracks to
meet me but he stood outside his gate and when he saw me
coming up Shirley Street he ran down the road with open arms,
Embraced me and, despite his feeble condition, with a supreme
effort, lifted me off my feet.
He never told me of his connection with Christophe. Years
later I heard the story from Mrs. Haven, one of Fr. Cooper's
***l * l a***
There were two things that "Pa Cooper" valued. These items
seemed to endorse the Christophe story. A sword that hung
Constantly over his bed and his walking stick which I later
1 discovered was a sword stick, the type of stick used by gentlemen
in the days of chivalry when at any moment a gentleman might
~ be called upon to defend his honour.
I took care of "Pa Cooper" when he was dying. I called in the
SHon. Dr.. A. H. B. Pearce, Director of Medical Services, when
S"Pa" suffered a stroke. At that time the D.M.S. was allowed to
Shave private practice.
S When "Pa Cooper" was dying he presented me with his sword

Warrior handing on his armour to a son.
b Needless to say ... I loved "Pa Cooper". He is one of my most

, I really started this article to tell you about the Reeves family.
, In a History of Barbados, published in London early in 1972
by Rupert Hart-Davis, author Ronald Tree tells of the great part
played by Sir Conrad Reeves in social and political reform in
The pioneer of reform for the uplift of coloured people in
Barbados was Samuel Jackson Prescod who was born in the early
" days of the nineteenth century.
He was illegitimate and of poor parentage but he acquired an
Education and became a powerful leader of his people.
"Prescod's services as journalist, statesman and judge," wrote
* Ronald Tree, "were given at a time when Barbados needed a man
, who could win the confidence of the people, and could use his
;- influence to build up a new order of society.
"His popularity was immense, and it is even said that an
:| enterprising firm imported goods stamped with his portrait,
which were known as 'Prescod wear'.
"After his death in 1871 the Agricultural Reporter wrote: 'His
^ class can never again produce so strong a man, in the sense in
.* which he was strong, because no one of them will ever require to
make his way upwards against such superincumbent pressure, or
Sflght such a battle as he fought and won.'"

Ronald Tree goes on to record that Prescod "had, however, a
formidable successor to carry on the torch during the next thirty
years, in the person of Conrad Reeves. Like Prescod he was
illegitimate, but by the time he was ready for school the
educational facilities had improved, and he was lucky enough to
attend a private school run by Nathaniel Roach, who had gained a
considerable reputation as a classical scholar and a lover of
"After school he, too, turned to journalism and quickly fell
under the charm of Prescod's personality, the latter helping him
to become a first class reporter.
"In 1860 he went to England and entered the Middle Temple
where he showed such promise that he was strongly advised to
remain there and make the Law his career. He decided, however,
to return to Barbados and was soon elected to the House of
"In 1874 he was appointed Solicitor-General moving up eight
years later to the Attorney-Generalship. In 1886 he became Chief
Justice, and remained in that position until he died. In 1888 he
was given a knighthood."
It was a supreme achievement for a coloured man to become a
Chief Justice and a knight back in the last century.
"A man of striking good looks," Ronald Tree writes, "Reeves
carried on the work of improving the lot of his race which had
been started by Prescod but whereas Prescod had aimed
primarily at helping the Negro people, Reeves' ambition was to
make both races realize that they had identical interests which
should be equally shared.
"His career was summed up by Dr. Chandler, the acting Chief
Justice after his death, who, when making a valediction in the
House of Assembly, said: 'He worked at the uprising of the
masses on the one hand, and at the liberalizing of the land-owners
and the Legislature on the other hand, until anything savouring
class legislation became a thing of the past, and he was eventually
accepted as leader of both races."
The man who finally carried reform to its ultimate conclusion
in Barbados was Sir Grantley Adams, a black man, who became
the first Prime Minister of Barbados and later the Prime Minister
of the ill-fated Federation of the West Indies which ruined his
public career but did nothing to reduce his stature in the records
Another interesting reference in this history of Barbados is to a
man who indirectly played an important part in the reform
movement in the Bahamas.
Hugh Springer was an active figure in Barbados during the
emergence of Sir Grantley Adams.
Readers of The Tribune know the story about his experience in
Nassau. On one occasion, when he was Registrar of the West
Indies University, he was stranded at the airport when a BOAC
plane broke down in Nassau on a flight to London.
No hotel in Nassau then accepted a coloured man as a guest. I
had met Mr. Springer briefly at a tea party in London during the
Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. He remembered my name,
phoned my house, and my wife and I took him home as our
This was one of several outrageous incidents during that period
that fired me to move an anti-discrimination resolution in the
House of Assembly in January 1956 that brought down the
barriers of racial discrimination in the colony..
Hugh Springer could have become one of the first coloured
Governors in the West Indies and I often thought it would have
been amusing if he were sent to the Bahamas as Governor of the
But he didn't want a Governorship because he said that the
office of Governor had been reduced to a mere rubber stamp. He
went to England and continued in the field of education. Now he
occupies an important position In London.
Hugh Springer was given an honorary Doctorate in Education
by a University in Canada and he was recently given a knighthood
by Her Majesty the Queen ... not just an ordinary Knight
Bachelor like me but he was created a Knight Commander of the
Most Excellent Order of St. Michael and St. George, an honour
reserved in the past for Colonial Governors.
And so time marches on ... and, for better or for worse, the
human pattern changes. Great men lead reforms. Small men are
overtaken, overthrown and trampled underfoot by the human

It's cheaper by the
dozen, but it's crowded
By Abigail Van Buren
a 1973n b Chicage Tribe-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY- I have had it! I am fed up with people
condemning my parents for having seven children.
The first thing they ask is, "Are you Catholic?" lWe're
not-we're Protestant.] Then they make some dumb crack
about my parents probably being hooked on sex or some-
Well, I happen to know that my mother planned each
one of us, and as long as my father can afford that many
children, I don't think it's anybody's business.
My mother has never had to work outside the home one
day after she was married, and that's more than a lot of
mothers can say.
If my parents can afford to have a dozen children, why
should they be made to feel that they are taking up more
space in the world than they're entitled to?
ONE OF SEVEN
DEAR ONE: If people continue to multiply at the pres-
ent rate, this world of ours is going to be in serious
trouble. For some up-to-date reading material on this sub-
ject, inquire at your public library.
DEAR ABBY: Six weeks ago [a week before she mar-
ried my son] my daughter in law said she would like to
call me by my first name since I was more like a friend
than a mother. I said, "Fine. Whatever makes you comfort-
The first time she caned me "Nellie" it hit me wrong. I
realized it really wasn't fine with me. I love her like a
daughter, not like a friend, and I didn't feel comfortable
being called "Nellie" by my daughter in law. I would
rather she call me "Mom" or "Mother Smith" or even
"Mrs. Smith" as she did before.
I have an idea she and my son cooked up this idea
because he feels more comfortable calling her parents by
their first names rather than "Mom and Dad."
Have you any suggestions? I want to resolve this before
any more time passes. NAME PROBLEM IN ILLINOIS
DEAR PROBLEM: Tell your daughter in law that you
don't feel comfortable being called "Nellie," and would she
mind calling you "Mother Smith," "Mother Nellie," or
something with which you both feel comfortable.
DEAR ABBY: My almost-16-year-old daughter and her
18-year-old boy friend have the habit of lying down side by
side on our very narrow couch while watching television.
They don't get embarrassed when her daddy or I walk in
and find them this way.
In some respects I may be old fashioned, but I think
some things can go a little too far, and I don't like to see
my daughter and her boy friend in that position. If they are
that close in our home, I wonder how close they get when
they are out on a date.
I don't like to be a square mother, Abby, but don't you
think I should ask them to please sit up when they're
watching TV? WANTS TO DO RIGHT
DEAR WANTS: The position you describe is too close
for comfort. Tell your daughter that she should keep both
feet on the floor. And that goes for her boy friend, too.
CONFIDENTIAL TO "TORN DAUGHTER IN HIGH-
LAND PARK": I can understand why your mother is bitter
about your father, from whom she is separated, but she
had no right to forbid you to invite him to your home. Tell
your mother you will let her know ahead of time when your
father will be there so she won't run into him.
Problems? Trust Abby. For a personal reply, write to

GENERAL TENDENCIES: Although there is
some friction on the surface, much can be
achieved by sticking close to ideals by which you govern your
life. Make today's activities forward worthwhile plans. If you
want others to go along with your views, be pleasant and
sociable with them.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Important you are tactful
when dealing with higher-ups; take care you are not
smart-alecky, if you want right results. Show perseverance to
make big headway. Avoid one who has strange ideas.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Do more study on that plan
you have, or it could go awry at the wrong moment Get all
that knowledge you need from newcomers who have the
answers. Avoid one who makes you feel inadequate
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Show you are practical in
handling all those obligations ahead of you. Your mate may be
in a rather sad mood, so do your utmost to cheer this person.
The evening can then be very pleasant.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Feel your partners
out on moot points, but don't get into any arguments, then
you know just where you stand Use diplomacy with one who
opposes you. Losing your temper could be bad
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Become more energetic where
your work is concerned and get better results, but don't
expect others to do likewise. Not a good day to buy that new
wardrobe, but fine for window shopping Think and act
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Show you are a perfectionist
and get more benefits, better results in the future Being
encouraging toward one who is in trouble can be very helpful
and your duty as a humanitarian. Instill new confidence
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Getting home fixed up and
establishing greater harmony with those who dwell with you is
best today. First get business matters well handled, though.
Attend some party in the evening that is a delight
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov 21) You have many errands,
jobs to do and should not waste a moment of today, so get
busy early and get them all out of the way If you need advice
from associates, secure it. Show you're an efficient, capable
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec 21) Fine day for making
improvements to your home so it becomes more comfortable
and valuable as well. Look to experts for the advice you need
on how to progress faster in your field of activity Relax in
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) You know exactly what
you want where personal and business matters are concerned,
so be sure to get the cooperation of key persons Improve your
appearance so that others are more impressed with you Do
some entertaining at home in p.m.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) First get those plans
worked out that you want to place before bigwigs soon, then
enjoy some recreation. Being practical is very important right
now Show you know what it is you really want
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Broaden your thinking so you
know exactly how to attain advancement both in the business
and the social world. Go out to gatherings with a real
purpose in mind. Recreation should be secondary
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY. he or she will be
one of those strong-willed young people who will study any
course of action while young and choose the best, then plow
through it tenaciously and in a practical way until it is
mastered and success ensues. Permit to have many playmates
early, otherwise your youngster will develop aan overly serious
attitude that could cause others to avoid him or her later, and
thus lessen the success and happiness possible in this

Pro ball players granted permission
by BABA to complete this season
By GLADSTONE THURSTON
ALTHOUGH BASKETBALLERS Wenty Ford, Eddie Ford, Rosevelt Turner, Fred Smith and Jason Moxey
have been considered professionals by the International Amateur Basketball Federation (F.I.B.A.) rules which
have been adopted by the Bahams Amateur Basketball Association they have been granted permission by the
Association to continue playing for the remainder of the B.A.B.A.'s 1972-73 series.
Under the general Bye-Laws
and Internal Regulations as
adopted by F.I.B.A., "a person
who is declared professional in
a sport other than basketball

this is done with the

approval is granted exclusively
for beneficient and educational
The constitution of the

ASKED TO LEAVE
Last night's meeting, which
was opened to representatives
of the 24-member clubs, was
also attended by former vice
president of the Association
Mr. Jerry Harper, who was
asked to leave before the
meeting started. "Being
interested in the topic of the
definition of an amateur
athlete, I attended," explained
"This meeting is open only
to representatives of the
clubs," rejoined the president
Mr. Vince Ferguson before Mr.
Harper sullenly left the room.
In preparation for future
and possibly international
matches, the Association will
have to be using the
international bye-laws as guide
lines, explained president
Ferguson. However, "Those
who happen to be pro ball
players will be allowed to
continue playing for the rest of
the season, but for the future,
they will be abiding by the
laws of the Olympic
Committee," said Mr.
"From the revival of
basketball in the Bahamas in
prgorammes have been carried
out in good faith, and it would
be unfair to invoke the law at
this time," reasoned Mr.
The Association though,
does not blame the players for
participation in pro ball but in

However, "persons who are
continually involved with
misdemeanors, though not

where he continually becomes
an embarrassment to the
Association, then he too must
be cut off from the
organization," said Mr.
"The more refined and
sophisticated an organization
is, the more demanding it
becomes to the community,"
said Mr. Ferguson, "and if
officials of clubs would
understand the principle of
which amateurism is founded,
then all the adverse publicity
would be stamped out.
"Amateur sports is not
founded on civil laws. It is
based on principles and if a
person fails to live up to the
principle of the amateur club,
then the officials can sever him
from the club," Mr. Ferguson
Although one's conflict with
the law is one's private life,
when it becomes adversely
publicized with the
organization, then it becomes
public, explained Mr.
In answer to a question as to
who decides the fate of a
player charged with "reflecting
adverse publicity," Mr.
Ferguson said that the offiicals
of the Association meet to
discuss the fate of the player
and in some instances, the
player is called. The manner in
which it is done may vary with
the circumstances involved.

JULIUS BOROS 1671
SNARES LEAD IN
LOS ANGELES OPEN
LOS ANGELES, JAN. 4
(AP)-Julius Boros ripped four
strokes off par with a 67 for a share
of the first-round lead Thursday In
the $135,000 Glen Campbell Los
Angeles Open golf tournament.
The 52-year-old Boros was tied
for the top spot with young Johnny
Miller and former PGA champion
Dave Stockton as he led an advance
of older players over the 7,028-yard
Riviera Country Club course.
Bob Rosburg, a 46-year-old
veteran who won the Bob Hope last
season, was alone at 68 while
49-yearOold Art Wall was in a group
Jack Nicklaus, 1972 Player of
the Year and pre-tourney favourite
here, also was at 69, just two
strokes back, and was tied with
Bert Yancey, Don Bies and
Australian David Graham.
Some of the game's bigger names
had their troubles on the
double-tough layout that ranks
among this nation's best.
Lee Trevino, the current British
Open champ and second only to
Nicklaus on last year's
money-winning list, took a fat 76
including a double bogey seven on
the 12th hole.
Arnold Palmer, trying to
recapture the magic that made him
the outstanding player of his era,
struggled home with a four-over-par
75 and admitted "I played just
George Archer managed only a
73, as did England's Tony Jacklin.
Archer is the defending champion.

Clan McAlpine and Tropigas top
the NPFL table at halfway stage
By IVAN JOHNSON
AT THE HALFWAY STAGE in the New Providence Sunday Soccer League last year's League
Champions, Clan McAlpine, share first place in the League table with Tropigas.
McAlpine and Tropigas have
both played five games, won
four and lost one giving
them a total of 8 points, two
points more than Red Lion
who are in second position in
the table with three wins and
two loses in five games. In
third place are Paradise and St.
George's with 4 points having
won two games and lost three
in five matches. At the bottom
of the table are Dynamos with
no points from five games. The
Dynamos have yet to score a
goal this season!
Tropigas, who have
improved steadily as the season
has progressed under the
captaincy of Randy Rodgers,
moved to the top of the table
last week when they beat
Grey scored the winning goal
for Tropigas with only minutes
of the game remaining.
McAlpine emerged from last
weekend's soccer fixtures with
several dents in their armour.
Skipper Dick Wilson broke his
leg in two places against
Tropigas, putting him out for
the rest of the season and the
following dlay midfield men
Peter Stanhami and Mike
Haywood were also added to
the injury list.
Wilson's absence in midfield
was very noticeable when the
Clan played Red Lion in the
President's Cup last Monday
and lost 3-1. Without his ball
control and ability to read the
game better than most players
McAlpine will undoubtedly
struggle to remain at the top of
the League table. Meanwhile
they can comfort themselves
with the thought that Stanham
and Haywood should be back
in action for their next fixture
in two week's time.
On Sunday Tropigas have a
good chance to move top of
the League table when they
play St. George's. St. George's
are a good side and they are at
present showing good form
having beaten Red Lion 3-2
last week. Unfortunately there
are one or two members of the
St. George's side who seem to
be unable to control their
tempers and their game with
the Lions was marred by
several rather ugly incidents
which were completely
However, Tropigas under the
leadership of the cool and
methodical Randy Rodgers in
midfield, admirably supported
by Grey and Elliot up front,
should be able to dispose of
the belligerent St. George's.
In the other match on
Sunday Paradise are slated to
meet bottom-of-the table
Dynamos who have had a very
poor season. No doubt Paradise
will be anxious to notch up
two easy points.
This weekend also sees the
resumption of the Saturday
League when Queen's College
play Barclays at the Pyfrom
Road School ground
(kickoff-3.30 p.m.), Appleton
Casuals play McAlpine at
Clifford Park (kickoff-2.15
p.m.), and Paradise play
Golden Isles at Clifford Park
St. Augustine's head the
Saturday League having won
four of their five games and
drawn one making themselves
and Barclays unbeaten so far
this season. Barclays are in
second place with seven points
with 3 wins and a draw in four
games and in third position are
Paradise and Golden Isles, who
have won one game, drawn
three and lost two to give them
each 5 pts.
The Appleton Casuals take
fourth place with 4 points
followed closely by Queen's
College with 3 points and
bottom of the table are
McAlpine who have not yet
won a game this season.
